Bethesda Cares has published a special report titled “Homelessness in Downtown Silver Spring”, a result of work through our outreach expansion in Silver Spring and partnerships with multiple agencies from May 2017 – April 2018. To view the report, click here

No matter where you live, you can donate your used vehicle to help us "drive someone home." All it takes is one phone call!

We are proud members of the county-wide effort to end chronic homelessness. inside not outside logo
